This is not a “make and bake” class, but probably the most important workshop you can take, as it will be the foundation for all subsequent fusing classes. Get ready to "put it all together" in a fun, fast paced informative class designed to introduce students to the terminology, tools and techniques of basic fusing and slumping of kiln formed glass. Hand outs are centered on building upon essential knowledge to include types of fusing glass, COE and compatibility and why glass reacts the way is does when exposed to heat. Learn proper glass cutting skills, firing schedules, kiln operation and maintenance, mold preparation, studio safety and troubleshooting.

Students will create up to 4 projects from techniques and materials demonstrated in class which include dichroic jewelry, kiln carving, pocket vases and more. The final project will incorporate these techniques into a 12" bowl or sculpture. Day 2 will cover cold-working techniques and mold preparation to give your projects that "gallery quality" appearance. All projects will be fired in the kiln at the end of class and will be available for pick up in a few days or shipping arrangements can be made.

Please bring a sack lunch – beverages will be provided
